Does anyone know if that carry-on will fit in most overhead lockers? Embraer 190 / a18/19/20 ... The dimensions are 57/44/25.5 - 49liters.
I don't want to run into a single problem at the gate with this carry-on and then have to worry about it every time I fly, i'm buying this for the long run!
thanks in advance for your help
Issue is not if it fits or not.

Issue is if the size will be checked. Some airlines check cabin luggage size. Can happen at the gate or in the queue before security check (as in CDG).

if it does not fit into the gauge, you will have to check it.
